PORTRAITS IN BLACK AND WHITE
WHAT THEY CARRY
'Survivors and What They Carry' is a powerful portrait series of Holocaust survivors by photographer and writer Barbara Mack that captures the essence of these remarkable people. The black and white portraits are accompanied by fascinating life stories of those pictured, as each survivor is holding a meaningful object, giving each portrait a deeper dimension. The work is the culmination of Barbara Mack’s seven-year collaboration with Holocaust survivors from Café Europa, a club sponsored by Jewish Family Services of Los Angeles.
“I thought of the title, 'Survivors and What They Carry' because not only did they carry these objects, but they carried so many other things, emotional things: history, persistence, courage, integrity.”
- Barbara Mack
